Stayed here for 2 nights recently. Book a package which consisted of 2 nights B&B and 1 dinner.
Firstly the bedroom was fine, clean and spacious. Apart from the fact that one of the light bulbs was fused, the room was fine.
The breakfast left a lot to be desired. No clean tables when we arrived down. No fresh fruit, apart from large chunks of melon. So I had to opt for cornflakes and a yoghurt. Went to get some brown bread, and it was rock hard. No scones or croissants available. The cooked breakfast was dried up and looked like something which was left over from the previous morning. There was no ham or salami available either. The chef was wandering around in what looked like a pair of boxer shorts and he sat in the corner of the dining room and ate his breakfast! Overall it was an extremely poor affair. And the second morning was no better.
As for the dinner... Well a child would eat more than the portions we got. There were I think about 3 choices for the starter, one of which they didn’t have. Again I think 3 choices for main course, one of which they didn't have. The others were chicken or steak, and the steak was going to cost an extra 8Euro.
Got the chicken, which was about the size of a wing, a very small scoop of potato and a handful of veg. similar story for the desert didn’t have all the choices, and what I got was basically cheesecake from a packet! Totally disgusting!!
Overall a nasty experience!! Next time I'll stay in Langtons, a much nicer establishment with good quality food.
